Back to the breaking Jack's record talk.

I believe that he still can break Jack's record...however, I think it is HUGELY contingent on if this back surgery is a success. If he continues to struggle with his back for the next couple of years, then I think he has no chance. If he can get healthy, he can still break the record.

People forget that although he hasn't won a major a major in 5 years, he HAS won 5 tournaments in each of the last two seasons if I'm not mistaken. Personal feelings aside, the guy is the greatest golfer I have ever seen. I didn't get to see Nicklaus in his prime, so thats why I say I have ever seen. Is he a jerk...absolutely. Can he absolutely smoke everyone else when he is at his best....absolutely.

One less sporting event I'll be watching.

Honestly, without Tiger, the Master's doesn't do it for me...a lot of good golfers, yes...but Tiger brings that "You gotta see what this guy can do," element.

Honestly, it is like the NBA when Jordan was playing...you watched to see what Jordan was going to do. It will be interesting to see the ratings for this years' Masters...I'm betting they will be down.

Cheating? No, probably not, but he definitely has the record for most mistresses.

This will cause the casual golf fan, who didn't watch pre-Tiger, to not watch The Masters. Myself...I will enjoy The Masters even more without him.

He's a great golfer, no doubt. But I'll be honest...I'm tired of hearing about every single little thing he does.

I have to disagree with you in terms of Jack's record. I don't think that he can win the record regardless of the outcome of surgery. Majors only come around 4x a year and he is not getting any younger. When he was running away with Majors he was heads and shoulders above the rest...however, now that gap has closed greatly (and mainly due to Tiger Woods making golf a mainstream sport). When Jack won all of his majors, the depth of talent was much shallower than it is now. I honestly think and agree with you that Tiger is the best to have ever played...but unfortunately, the 2000 Tiger Woods would smoke the 2014 version.

Default Re: Tiger Woods to miss The Masters

I'll be interested to see what this does to the crowds following golfers next week at the Masters. What I mean is that usually half the patrons are following Tiger so I can usually walk and follow another big time golfer rather easily. (following Tiger is near impossible) I know most people just like to sit and watch but I like to follow guys. I expect it will be much harder to follow guys like Phil(if he plays), Scott, McIlroy, etc...now.

The Masters is still The Masters. It will always be an event I watch, but Tiger and I are about the same age and I've grown up pulling for him. So, I will miss him being there immensely.

Like it or not, Tiger adds something special to the tournament, and I will really miss him.

Plus, this adds more Phil coverage...which is So gross.

You are right...the true-blue golf fan will watch the Masters...I'll admit it is a special event to watch....

But for people like me, the casual golf fan, I likely won't watch until the final round possibly, and that depends on who has a shot to win.

This Masters could be a good barometer on how the PGA will move forward when Tiger hands it up, and how far the ratings may drop when that happens.

I did have some of my golf buddies bring this point up...they are upset he is NOT playing, not because they are fans...but because they got used to having everyone follow Woods, and they could easily see holes other golfers were at, no problem.

Assuming TW's back surgery is not a total disaster, I fully expect him to break Sam Snead's record. I used to be one of the ones who thought (pre-personal life debacle) that TW would break Jack's record, but now I would have to bet against it if I'm putting my money on it.

I saw him play at the British Open last year. He missed that one, too.

The Masters Tournament went off on schedule as expected. Fred Couples had the largest love and following from the crowd on Sunday. It was cool to see even if he did fade down the stretch. That's the kind of thing makes the Masters what it is.
